I received a clean SUSE 10 machine which I need to install a development environment on.

Currently, I need to install GCC 3.2.3 and GNU Make. However I am having trouble bootstrapping GCC. I searched for RPMs, but didn't find any, and I'm not sure I even know how to install them.

What is the fastest way to install these two components?
